WIKIPEDIA EXCERPT
"Starman" is a full-scale human mannequin clad in a SpaceX pressure spacesuit. It flew as part of the test payload for a Falcon Heavy test flight, sitting inside a Tesla Roadster. It was placed with the right hand on the steering wheel and the left elbow resting on the open window sill. The mannequin was named after the David Bowie song "Starman", and the car's sound system was set before launch to continuously loop the Bowie song "Space Oddity". It is currently in orbit around the Sun.
